Trex® Decking and Railing Provides Eco-friendly Addition to HGTV® Smart Home 2018

WINCHESTER, VA--(Marketwired - March 15, 2018) - Palmetto Bluff is known as one of the lushest, most scenic places in the South Carolina Lowcountry, with miles of waterfront properties that allow homeowners to explore the tranquil water trails or relax on its unique, secluded beaches. From unspoiled rivers and salt marshes to diverse wildlife and maritime forests, Palmetto Bluff is a natural fit for the HGTV Smart Home 2018. With smart design in mind, the home features an eco-friendly outdoor living space created with high-performance, low-maintenance products from Trex Company, the world's number one premium decking and railing brand.

Amid the spectacular natural beauty, Trex Company brings smarter, greener solutions to the home's outdoor spaces with Trex Transcend® decking, Trex® Signature™ Railing and Trex® Deck Lighting™. Like the entire Trex outdoor living portfolio, these products are engineered to bring an enduring aesthetic and unmatched durability to the HGTV Smart Home 2018, without time-consuming maintenance or long-term environmental impact.

"Trex Transcend is an ideal choice for any 'smart' home, delivering the premium aesthetics of imported hardwoods without the harmful environmental impact or time-consuming maintenance," said Adam Zambanini, vice president of marketing for Trex Company. "For this home, the designers selected our silvery Island Mist shade, which evokes the perfect combination of luxury and the distressed driftwood look that is popular in the Lowcountry."

Sustainable Decking
Trex Transcend decking is manufactured with more than 95 percent recycled content, including reclaimed wood and sawdust, as well as plastic film from common household items such as produce bags and bubble wrap. For every 500 square-foot Trex deck built, homeowners are putting more than 140,000 recycled plastic bags to use. In fact, Trex is one of the largest plastic film recyclers in North America, preventing more than 1.5 billion plastic bags from ending up in landfills each year. Unlike wood, high-performance Trex Transcend is engineered to resist fading, staining, scratching and mold -- and it won't rot, warp, crack or splinter. Upkeep is hassle-free with no sanding, staining or painting required, and food and drink spills wash off easily with just soap and water.

Railing with the View in Mind
With a sleek and minimalist design, Trex Signature Railing in Charcoal Black creates panoramic sightlines that will highlight the picturesque Palmetto Bluff views. Equal parts form and function, Trex Signature Railing combines superior style with the unparalleled strength of aluminum. True to Trex's eco-friendly legacy, the aluminum used to manufacture the railing collection is made from over 50 percent recycled aluminum and is a 100 percent recyclable, renewable resource.

Sophisticated Lighting
Adding ambiance and safety, Trex Deck Lighting takes outdoor spaces from invisible to inviting after sundown. Easily incorporated into a new or existing outdoor space, Trex Deck Lighting can be installed onto railing, stair risers or within the deck itself. When not in use, the light fixtures are designed to blend in with the decking and railing for a clean, unfettered look. The energy-efficient, low-voltage lights are extremely durable, weather-proof and salt-air resistant -- ensuring that they will endure the elements for years to come. Plus, the lights also are cool to the touch, making them safe for children and pets.
